What if my bag isn’t accepted into the Giveback Program?
If your bag isn’t in a condition that we feel we can sell at our Archive Sale (hey, we get it, our bags are used day in, day out and over the years, they can start looking very well worn). If this is the case with your bag, we thank you for wanting to be involved in our Giveback Program but your bag won’t be accepted if it’s not in a quality resalable condition.
What happens to my bag after it goes to Saben Giveback HQ?
It will be priced, and stored until our Archive Sale on November 19th where it will be available for purchase by a lucky lucky customer, and the money donated to charity.
What happens to the money from the sale of my bag?
All the money from our Giveback Scheme will be donated to charity.
What happens if my bag doesn’t sell at the Archive Sale.
We will donate it to one of our charity partners like Dress For Success or Women’s Refuge.
How long does the Saben Giveback Program run for?
It opens on October 1st and you have until October 31st to send your bag to the Giveback Scheme. After that date, we can’t accept any more submissions until the following year.
Which charity are you donating the profits to?
We’re letting our community choose - you'll see a poll go out on social media before the sample sale, and we will update this page.
